Our winning project, located in Miami Beach, is a 6k sqft penthouse that sits atop an adaptive reuse building and provides captivating views. We have created a design for our clients that is modern and elegant, honoring Piero Lissoni’s architectural vision for the building. Adapting the former hospital space to meet our clients’ needs has posed interesting challenges and opportunities for our team, including the chance to include many custom elements.

We dropped the 15’ ceilings to 12’ to hide the mechanicals and provide a homier atmosphere. To bring “Miami modern” to the space, we are using exquisite woods and stones and are incorporating custom millwork throughout. The neutral color palette frames 360 views of water and sky and is warmed with layers of texture including custom rugs, custom headboards, upholstered furniture, book matched marble, and accessories.
